Hindustan coir
The Indian coir Industry is a traditional cottage industry confined to handloom sector. In order to meet the challenges from the competing countries in the world market, the Govt.of India decided to introduce mechanization in the coir industry in phased manner and to start with, it was decided to mechanize 1/3 of the coir matting sector. Accordingly the Coir Board had established Hindustan Coir in the year 1968 and started production on 1.1.1969. The Hindustan Coir is a pioneering effort of the Board towards mechanization of coir industry on modern lines. Beginning with the import of five looms with ancillary winding machines, the factory went on to acquire more sophisticated looms like dobby and Jacquard loom. 6 looms are installed in the factory as detailed below:
Power Loom 1 Mtr.width 1 Number
Power Loom 1.5 Mtr.width 1 Number
Power Loom 2 Mtr.width 2 Numbers
Jacquard Loom 1 Mtr.width 1 Number
Dobby Loom 1 Mtr.width 1 Number
Generally the Power Loom matting is produced in two quality standards P4A3(4 shaft) & B2A1(2 shaft)
